Genpact India's assistant vice president committed suicide on Tuesday after the business process outsourcing firm suspended him over allegations of sexual harassment.
The 35-year old deceased wrote in his suicide note that the allegations were untrue. His body was discovered by his wife at their home in Noida around 11:30pm, according to the police.
The executive was barred from participating in any official work after two women colleagues alleged that the victim eve-teased them. Genpact had put him on temporary suspension pending the outcome of investigation.
“ In his note, the man denied all allegations and wrote that even if he is proven innocent, his reputation has been tarnished,” Munish Chauhan, station house officer, Surajpur police station, told the Hindustan Times.
The victim hailed from Haryana and had joined Genpact in 2007 as a process developer.
